Classic French Food in KL or Authentic French Food in KL? Where do you find them? There is one actually, hidden right in the heart of TTDI. A hidden gem in the area. Brasserie Leon at Green Terrace, TTDI is one of the place that you might want to hunt for. Indeed, this is one of my favourite restaurant for French Food. Was introduce by Yukiko 2 years ago as she was so into it that she is telling the whole world about it.

Leon (1)

The place might look posh, with high glass setting that brings in all natural light. Fine dining settings that makes you feel it is going to break your bank. Wait till you flip through their menu, then you will be suprise.

Leon (2)

Not your usual fine dining place, as the chef want the diners to expereince the setting and ambiance without digging in too deep into your wallet, yet enjoying homestyle classic French Cuisine.

Leon (15)

starting off with their starters.

Leon (3)

Bread are made fresh daily and one of the first item to reach onto the table. Cripsy on the skin ages, inside is soft and fluffy.

Leon (4)

Deep fried beef cromesquis – Minced beef is dipped in batter and deep fried, and served with smoked paprika mayo

Made fresh, and the meatball is not too dence. Fried to perfection on the meatball and must dip with chef special sauce.

Leon (5)

Flamed cured mackerel @ RM 13.90

for the starters, this would be my highly recommended dish. A simple dish that had some slight tweak in it. Makareal cured to perfection. Nice flavour from the blow tourch on the skin, hint of salty, hint of sweetness aftertaste and the right balance of ingredient flavour. A perfect pairing for their house white wine too.

Leon (6)

Escargots with garlic butter @ RM 16.90 – one of the chef signature item which is also one of his best seller. Escargo is fresh, and peel off from the shell. Easy dining for many of us. Punch with flavour as the garlic butter is strong. I put it ontop on the bread and paired it with wine. Loving it!

Leon (7)

Leon (8)
For cheese lover, the chef is using different cheese for this and you will enjoy every bite of it. Each bite is flavourful by itself and the jam at the side is to give a pairing of sweet note on it. Depending on yourself, as I do dip on it to give me a better dimension of flavour. Deep fried brie cheese @ RM 15.90

Leon (9)


Leon (10)

One of the latest edition into the outlet which is quite high in demand is this  Traditional Raclette @ RM 32.90 , A slab of cheese being place and burt, then melted raclette cheese is scraped over steamed potatoes, onion pickles and gherkins. Simple and hit the right note. The trick is you have to eat it fast!

Leon (11)


Leon (16)

So much food, just have to start some where

Leon (17)

Next is the singature mains.

Leon (18)

Grilled Australian grain-fed beef striploins are the signature from the chef. A 180-gram portions and of course to choose medium-rare, and drench with Léon’s signature sauce,.

Angus @ RM 79.90 or regular beef @ RM 49.90

Leon (19)

Leon (20)

I quite like the Léon’s roasted spring chicken @ RM 19.90 for a half-bird. An effort for inserting herbs into the chicken to get the meat juicy and punch with flavour. Juicy inside out and a classic dish. Some of you might not used to the saltiness of it, but I find it alright.

Leon (21)

Roasted salmon served with a beurre blanc sauce, with hints of smoked paprika.

Leon (24)

I love their nother  Le Poulet Frites @ RM19.90. Crispy inside out, cut of fries is perfect and it does have a hint of sweeetness after taste. First time enjoying fries paired with white. and taste pretty good. .

Leon (22)

Leon (25)

As for the endingg, we end with a sweet satisfaction. Those of you love pungent flavour, their dessert is for you to knock off.

Leon (28)

Creme Brulee @ RM 9.90. Density of cream is just nice, hint of vanilla and I like the slight egg’y after taste. The torch burnt top is just nice.

Leon (31)

Tiramisu Verrine @ RM 10.90 Not the usual tiramisu I have. Creamy, yet the sponge cake soak with nice espresso coffee shot which is not too bitter but goes well with the cream.

Leon (32)

Chocolate Mousse @ RM 10.90. I believe this would be girl’s best friend. Dense and pack with flavour.

Leon (33)

Why is this place one of my recommended place. Rather simple. Price, ambiance and food. A place I have visited couple of times over the years.

Psst, also this place was previously known as Cocott.

Hennessy Declassified 2.0 is back again this year taking place at Menara KEN TTDI. The event is taking place from 26th November to 1st December. The interactive experiential journey will brings us through by decoding Hennessy’s myths and journey of making it through a few of their interactive zones.


Hennessy Declassified (2)

Love the setting of this building. You are greeted with this pretty lining of lights as you sail up from the escalator below.

Hennessy Declassified (1)

this year is slightly different for registration process. Each of us are given a unique bar code and at the counter, just scan on the barcode and that’s where all our details are in it for verification. This barcode is also needed upon drinks collection at the bar.

Hennessy Declassified (3)

Hennessy Declassified (4)

Hennessy Declassified (5)

First stop, experiencing the changing seasons in the Cognac region.

Hennessy Declassified (8)

then how the fruits are being process and stored for eaux-de-vie.

Hennessy Declassified (9)

with the original oak barrel from Hennessy as the art of writing the trademark on each barrel, and barrel processing are passed from one generation to the next. If your nose is near enough, you can still smell the alcohol on the barrel.

Hennessy Declassified (11)

This is the ‘grand tasting room’ that has never been open to the public. Here, the mysterious ritual of Hennessy’s hereditary tasting committee, who are in charge of tasting, choosing and making decision for an exceptional blend for Hennessy cognac was uncovered. With distinct tasting techniques and sensorial memories inherited from predecessors, the Master Blender and his tasting committee will gather in the grand tasting room to taste and select the eaux-de-vie at 11am every morning. Only the one sitting in the table with chairs are allow to talk and those that sitting behind are there to observe and listen only. It will take you at least 10 years to be promoted to sit on the table.

Hennessy Declassified (10)

Hennessy Declassified (12)

Then we go thru a tasting series from the master himself.

Hennessy Declassified (14)

The variety of Hennessy over the years. How many have you tried before?

Hennessy Declassified (15)

Enjoying of tasting session

Hennessy Declassified (16)

Final, we reach the speakseasy bar as they featured signature cocktails from Hennessy and Hyde 53.

Hennessy Declassified (17)

CB2 is one of my favourite as Hennessy are further aged in this American oak barrel. That gives you a unique distinctive taste.

Hennessy Declassified (18)

Do scan your bar code on the bar area and choose one of the 5 cocktails in the menu.

Hennessy Declassified (21)

Enjoying our night with the drinks.

There is a huge wave of good feedback to Dottys Pastries & Coffee. When they launch the salted egg yolk cronut, every one went “yaya” over it. I have never tried till recently decided to pay a visit.

dotty (1)

I always thought that they are a pastry shop, and little did i know that they do serve mains or lunch and dinner in proper meal.

dotty (2)


dotty (2, (1)

Arrangement in their cake display area is well done. It makes it look like you would want to order the whole zone.

dotty (2, (2)

dotty (3)

coffee is not too bad too. Not too acidic to my liking.

dotty (4)

As we reach here about 4.30pm, their signature salted egg yolk croissant was already sold out. to our disappointment, opted for their second option which is salted egg yolk donut. Love the texture of soft fluffy doughnut  and the fillings of salted egg yolk is consider generous.

dotty (5)

In the list, I decided to order the weird one which is Onde Onde Coissant Doughnut. It is a bit unique where it had a slight chewy texture as the filling base and the coissant is slightly crips outside. Not too bad though.

dotty (8)

dotty (6)

Black cup cake Salted egg yolk  is the least favourite.

dotty (7)

Follow by their Chocolate Croissant. When comes to this bite, I think it is too heavy as the first 2 flavour is already quite strong in taste. Even though pair with coffee to balance off the taste, personally still feel that it might be slightly too much for me.

Will be back to hunt their signature item.

One of my favourite snack that goes with beer is this Salted Egg Fish Skin with Pork floss @ RM 13.80. Crispy and aromatic yet not too salty. Usually I will have this whole portion myself.

Brew House (6)

Pizza here never fails as the consistency is there. We had Smoked Duck & Peach Pizza @ RM 18.80. Dough is fresh, soft and quite smooth. Dressing is not too bad.

Their Nyonya Pork Ribs Curry @ RM 14.80 does goess well with the beer. As the amount of spice added in just right.

Felt that it is something special compare to others as it is filled with 11 fresh fruits and vegetable ingredients, Pineapple, Pamelo, beetroot, lettuce iceberg,carrot, radish, lime leaves, mix nuts, flakes and 5 spices powder. Sesame seed, black pepper and home made special sweet and sour sauce.

Alison Soup House (20)

Prosperity salmon Soup is very simple, and love the strong flavour of it. Quite a lot of chuncky salmon in it too. The end taste resemblance to a good miso soup paste. Well, goes along with multi grain rice.

Alison Soup House (1)

For sides, they do have some pickled vegetable for you to start off with and homemade Pai Tee to get your mouth moving. It is just simple and good.

Many of us are cooking much less now where there are so many ways to opt for convenience to get food source. . Hail from Johor as Alison Soup House is a new player in the scene that offers variety of homecook soup recipe  that cooked with at least 20 types of different ingredients to give strong good flavour as this reflects back to her childhood memories.

Alison (3)

It is a shop not that hard to find as it sits right above G express and one good advantage to this shop is that it is a pet friendly shop. Therefore, you can enjoy a good bowl of nourishing pippin hot soup with your furkids.

I do not really feature herbal tea usually but then I love the strong flavour of it as it gives you slight bitter end to my liking.

Alison (10)

Sze Chuan Pickled Cucumber @ RM 3.

Alison (9)

7 Treasure Herbal @ RM 21.90. Brew with red Dates, goji berries, Yu Zhu, Dang sheng, Soy Beans, Barley. The aroma of soup trails the air is pretty good as you know that this bowl of soup is pack with flavours.  It is also serve along with Egg, Pork Belly and vegetable. I added Multi Grain rice @ RM 3.50

Love the flavour of the soup, as indeed it is pack with flovour. Generous with ingredients too.

Alison (11)

Alison (13)

I believe this would be one of many diners choices. I find that their Yellow Wine Ginger is a very homey cooking type version as it is cook with 3 different types of wine and ginger (one from Bentong) and best of all it is serve with mee sua. Serve along with a shot of wine too, to enhance on the taste of soup. Love the spicy ginger end flavour. @ RM21.90

Alison (12)

Alison (18)

Alison (20)

Alison (14)

Another classic home version of soup is Money Dafers ABC Soup @ RM 20.90. Served with money dafers, pork belly and egg. Soup base is very sweet from fresh carrots, radish, corn. Among the 3 of the soup. I prefer this as it is very simple and direct with flavours that I am comfort with.

Alison (21)

Look at the amount of herbs, spices and ingredients that being added into a bowl of soup, that is how this bowl of soup is nourishing and the soup base texture and colour.

Alison (19)

Alison (15)

We also order some sides to share. Hainanese Chicken @ RM 16 as I believe this is with a light twist in it where the top is added on some peppery to give a good combination with ginger and the homemade chili is pretty good. Find that the chicken is slightly overcook.

Alison (16)

This is one of the item that I would definitely order – Home Made Pork Belly Satay @ RM 16. Well marinated as my personal preference, I think that the pork belly is just too fatty for me. Their homemade sauce is very interesting as it is made of variety of spices (not your typical type of peanut sauce)

Alison (17)

Alison (22)

To end the meal, they have homemade bubur Cha Cha. Thick with coconut base, yet peanut is not overcook that give you some nice bites and yam , carrot is all cook till soft.

If the budget fits your pocket, and you love strong soup base flavour then this place is definately one of the place to visit as they serve pretty good homecook soup recipe that warm your tummy up.
